Interesting thought. So you are thinking that the Jim Beam may settle out and therefore cause issues.

it will float. as any alcohol does in a miuxed drink if not consumed within an evening... i don't know if it is an issue, take a keg and throw a bottle of coke in and see with all other settings the same.

Dude, youre kidding about separating right? Ethanol, which is an alcohol is polar, and since water is also polar, it is miscible in water. Does the alcohol separate out of your beer?

Not only that, the ethanol will grab onto the water. That's why its so hard to get to 100% ethanol (and everclear is around 95%).

thats a pretty good idea. it has to be able to be done becausae they sell Jim Beam and cola in cans.
IF over cabonating is the issue then couldn't you make the cola from a kit and then add the Beam to it and then force carb the hole keg ?

My guess is by add ethanol (jim Beam) your reducing the restense of the liquide. making the liquide easy to flow you need less pressure to push it. Best thing to do lower psi when starting a new cola kit and Jim Beam...start at 15 psi and work your way up in 5 psi at a time until you get it right.

Then again I havn't got a clue what I'm talking about...

Later

To the OP... did you ever have a resolution or repeat the process with success?

We've been contemplating purchasing 2 liters of tonic to fill a keg, and if possible perhaps the gin along with it...

I have filled kegs with coke before. 30 psi was fine. I haven't tried the whiskey mixed in so that could be the variable that's causing the problem.

No....gave up on the idea but I certainly think kegged tonic would work.

Me and my roomate made some "jungle juice" one time that was a gallon of everclear and 4 gal of juice. It was served at 30psi on a party tap for like 2 months and always seemed to pour perfectly.

I could not stand the stuff but everyone else seemed to love it. There was a reason it lasted 2 months though...

I dont see why your setup would not work...
